FAVOURITES: Arsenal's Alex Iwobi believes City are in pole position to defend their Premier League title.

That’s where we’ll begin, after Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi revealed he believes Pep Guardiola’s side are in pole position to defend the Premier League.

Sky Sports have the story, with Iwobi saying: "Everyone thought that last season, but Liverpool give them a tough challenge as well.

"So, you never know what could happen. I'm sure every club's going to invest and try and get their team right.

"Pre-season's coming up really soon, so everyone's trying to get ready for the season to start.
